Professor Bhargava has taught the “Distributed Database Systems” course twenty times since 1985. He has graduated the largest number of Ph.D. students in Computer Sciences Department in Purdue University. He has been inducted in the “Book of Great Teachers” at Purdue University.
Professor Bhargava's research involves both theoretical and experimental studies in distributed systems. His research group has implemented a robust and adaptable distributed database system called RAID, an adaptable video conferencing system and is involved in networking research. Prof. Bhargava has conducted experiments in large scale distributed systems, communications, authentication, key management, fault-tolerance and Quality of Service. His current interests are in secure mobile systems, multimedia security and QoS as a security parameter.
Professor Bhargava was the chairman of the IEEE Symposium on Reliable and Distributed Systems held at Purdue in October 1998. Professor Bhargava is on the editorial board of three international journals. In the 1988 IEEE Data Engineering Conference, he and John Riedl received the best paper award for their work on "A Model for Adaptable Systems for Transaction Processing." Professor Bhargava is a fellow of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and Institute of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers. He has been awarded the charter Gold Core Member distinction by IEEE Computer Society for his distinguished service. He received Outstanding Instructor Awards, from the Purdue chapter of the ACM in 1996 and 1998. He has received IEEE Technical Achievement award for a major impact of his decade long contributions to foundations of adaptability in communication and distributed systems in 1999. Prof. Bhargava's students have received best paper awards in International conferences and have started a Nasdaq listed company.
